, i do ride on the sidewalk, and i don't want to get killed on the way to trader joes. i am here to ask you to approve this plan. it's a good plan, and will help myself and other bicyclists and pedestrians, and make the neighborhood look nice too. >> dan landry. >> good afternoon. >> good afternoon, board. my name is actually dan landy, no "r." i live in the north panhandle neighborhood, two blocks from grove. i am a bicyclist. i am a car driver. i am a pedestrian. and every now and then i take the 43 masonic bus. i think i avail myself of all transportation options. and i think this is an excellent plan. i will speak first as a bicyclist. i have been living in the neighborhood 15 years. and during that time bicycle transportation has definitely improved a lot. and i thank you for your part in that. i now have great ways to go east, south and west. unfortunately north the only real way to go is masonic. and as others have mentioned, it's unsafe and scary. i too ride on the sidewalk at night. i don't like riding on the sidewalk, but i do not want to take my life into my hands. so
to trader joes and not wanting to be killed on the way there. and to bike on the sidewalk, and to provide space for people to bike on the street and get people off the sidewalk. and have a ripple effect to reduce the speeds on corridor, because someone was killed walking back to her car with her groceries recently from trader joes. it's a real tragedy and totally preventable. and one shortcoming on this plan is that it doesn't go as far as it could. it doesn't go to trader joes. we ask that there are some improvements made at oak and masonic. which is one block south of where the project extends to. feld and masonic is a big place for bicyclists to cross, because of the light. but oak and masonic is a place for pedestrians to cross. it was a two-lane left turn from oak to masonic. it's now one lane, which is much better but there still could be a lot of improvements. this will improve conditions for everyone, walking and driving and biking. and it will make clear that masonic is not a speed way. people live along masonic, it's a neighborhood street and should be a place for people to wal
intrigued being the next model to follow joe montana. but, i'm happy to be here and joined with, of course, tania peterson our zoo director and so many friends. i also had to wake up to my wife saying, we are going to the store today, are we not? so she is there already, we are already focused on the orange section of the store to get ready for this weekend. but i want to not only congratulate unico for locating here in our very exciting part of our city, the international part where so many millions of visitors come every year. in fact, last year in 2011, over 16.3 million visitors came to san francisco and most of them found their way to unit square to the best shopping in the world. this is the center for arts and culture and of course it is our innovation capitol of the world and we are doing all of the right things to continue our success in the city. part of that success, is to work with great corporate citizens like unico and their efforts to make sure that they give their best effort to hire san franciscoans. today we celebrate not just a flag ship store but a store that has made c
. next speaker. >> good afternoon. my name is joe and i'm a resident of the golden gateway. i have live there had for 18 years. when i first started my tenancy in july of 1995, i quickly made contact with existing tenants and formed friendships with them. some of them have lasted to this day, even though some of those tenants are have moved out and then i noticed that certain parents on my floor, the 14th floor, where there are 20 apartments, didn't house them and learned that they were rented to corporation for their overflow tenants. it changes the atmosphere considerably, if you rent an apartment or even if you buy a home, you want tenants that you can associate with, and this hotelization makes you feel like you are in a hotel, not in a home. a second point i would briefly make is that the hotelization program seems to subvert capitalism. if an owner of an apartment house who has several vacancies, the inclination is that he will raise rents, but with hotelization, chances are that the apartment house will always be filled and there will be no motivation by the owner to lower rent

of planning studies that the port and p dc will commences towards the end of this year. i saw joe step in and i want to acknowledge him as well. the port and they have a long history of working together, and commissioner adams you weren't here before, but let me just give you a brief background. as part of the pier 27 james r. herman cruise terminal project. it went through the process. it required amendments to their special area plan, san francisco waterfront area plan because there were exceptions associated with that project that didn't meet with the current policies of that plan, and we had approached that process before the america's cup project came to play. when america's cup project came into play we ended up basically not having enough time to do all of the planning work that we would normally do to try and reconcile those policy issues in the context of getting approvals for the pier 27 project and with the cooperation of them and the public we were ultimately able to get approvals from b cdc in the form of amendments to the plan as well as a major permit for that proje
